Closed businesses to pitch in support for landfill

The Kimball Board of Public Works considered the purchase of a new conveyor belt at the Kimball Landfill and recommended the matter to City Council to progress.

Employees at the landfill have made multiple repairs to the current conveyor belt and replacement has been considered for nearly a year.

“It is getting worn out and needs to be replaced before we have problems,” City Administrator Dan Dean said.

A bid was received from Karl W. Schmidt & Associates, Inc., at just over the $30,000 budgeted amount including hardware. Labor was bid at an additional $6,800, according to Dean.
